Quasi-Satic Adiabatic Process

  1. Sep 8, 2005 #1
    Hello Friends!

    can any body help me???

    show that for a quasi static adiabatic process of an ideal gas, the following reaction holds



    At about 100ms after detonation of a uranium fission bomb, the "ball of fire" cosists of a sphere of gas with a radius of about 50 ft and a temperature of 300,000 degree Kelvin. At what radius is the temperature 2000 K?

    For the First:

    Use Ideal Gas Law and the Equation for adiabatic process [tex]PV^{\gamma}=constant[/tex]
